EYES ON HEALTH by Lawrence Cusma, OD 9 Gleason Road Scotia, NY 12302

FALL - THE OTHER EYE ALLERGY SEASON

As summer winds down, eye allergies tend to flare up. The main culprit of fall allergies is ragweed. Ragweed is a very widespread, yellow-flowering plant that’s commonly found across the country, especially in sandy soils along roadsides, riverbanks, vacant lots and abandoned fields. A single ragweed plant can produce up to a billion grains of pollen over a season. Ragweed pollen is easily dispersed by the wind, which means you can develop allergy symptoms from ragweed growing miles away. Ragweed usually starts releasing its pollen in August and can y contribute to cause eye allergies well into October. About seventy five percent of people who are allergic to blossoming plants in spring are also allergic to ragweed pollen in the fall. If you suffer from fall eye allergies, see your doctor in summer before your allergy symptoms begin. Sometimes preventive medications can be prescribed to make your eyes less sensitive to ragweed and other common allergens. If you wear contact lenses, consider switching to eyeglasses until your allergy symptoms subside, or try daily disposable contacts that you discard after each use.

For further information, call our office at 399-6368

It looks like that, about the time your reading this we’ll be enduring some nights in the mid 30s. While frost isn’t predicted, it is a reminder that the growing season is winding down. Soon we’ll be hunkering down for the cold months ahead. To help us through in good spirits, I love to feed the wild birds. Attracting wild birds to your yard is simple. To endure such unrelenting cold, winter birds need to stay active. Calories and protein fuel this activity. The trick to attracting birds is to provide calories and protein in forms that they prefer. Sunflower seeds are an important source of both protein and calories. Black Oil Sunflower is higher in calories per pound that Grey Striped Sunflower. Many folks believe that Striped Sunflower MUST be better because it costs more. In reality, the reason striped is more expensive is due to supply and demand. Striped sunflower seeds can be machine hulled while keeping the kernel intact. Humans consume hulled sunflower kernels in a variety of forms. These alternate demands on the supply of striped sunflower is what keeps the price higher that that of black oil sunflower. Black oil sunflower is grown almost exclusively for wild bird feeding. I’ve found that the smaller black oil sunflower kernels are more easily handled by chickadees and other small birds. I consider the second most important food for wild bird to be fine cracked corn.

PRICES EFFECTIVE SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 thru FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4

Cracked corn appeals to ground and platform feeding birds like cardinals, doves and juncos.

Pennysaver, Moneysaver & The Bi-Weekly

cracked corn is too large to beneficial to small wild birds.

When you shop for cracked corn, be sure you get FINE cracked corn. Medium or coarse White millet is also a good source of protein and adds variety to the birds’ diet.

2013 Fall & Winter

Usually birdseed is purchased in a blend. There are dozens of blends on the market. Usually the one with the cutest name or prettiest bag is the most popular. Be aware that

www.crwnewspapers.com

many blends contain “filler” seeds that no birds eat. The most common “filler” seeds are red millet and milo. Their red color increase “eye appeal” to the humans that buy it. Some “economical” blends can contain 50% or more filler seed. This means that you’ll spend less each time you buy a bag but end up buying more bags over the course of the winter. For instance, 50 lbs. Of “economical” birdseed costing $9 might have 60% filler. What’s left after the birds get through sorting it (and they will) has cost you 45 cents per pound. A 40 lb. Bag of a premium quality blend costing $13 with no red fillers is actually a better value at only 30 cents per pound. These are not extreme examples either. Generally, the more red seed in a blend, the lower the actual value. Learn to ignore fancy bags and cute names. It’s more important that the blend appeal to the birds rather that to you. Suet, or rendered animal fat, is always available at my feeding station. It is VERY high in calories. Best of all, it attracts creeping birds like nuthatches, woodpeckers and flickers. I prefer buying suet without seeds added to it. It lasts longer and is less attractive to squirrels. My feeders are attached to metal arms that place the feeders directly outside the windows. I hang twiggy branches from the arm surrounding the feeders. This keeps the birds from crashing into the windows. It also gives the birds a place to perch while they wait their turn at the feeder. After they visit the feeder, they’ll return to the branches to peck away at their treat. This keeps them in close viewing range, making the show that much better. For ground feeding birds, I have a 4’ round platform raised 6’ off the ground on a post. I scatter my seed blend on this for the cardinals, doves, juncos and other ground feeders. Sometimes when I approach the window slowly, I can catch a view of wild turkeys that come to take advantage of any seed that falls off the platform. What a treat! Thanks for the read.

Many homeowners may not know that pruning trees in the winter can benefit some trees. Deciduous trees are dormant in winter, so they won’t bleed sap when pruned at this time of year like they will at other times of year.

In addition, many varieties of trees are less likely to attract disease or insects if pruned in the winter. Oak trees, for example, emit a strong odor when pruned, and that odor can attract a type of beetle that causes oak wilt. But this type of beetle hibernates in the winter, making this the ideal season to prune oak trees.

Before pruning trees, regardless of the time of year, homeowners should learn the types of trees on their property and when the ideal pruning season is for each type of tree. Pruning also may depend on climate, so speak with a local gardening or landscaping professional to determine when is the best time to prune the trees on your property. Once the time has come to prune, keep the following tips in mind to maintain healthy and aesthetically appealing trees.

* Remove limbs that appear to be competing for space. Tree limbs that are crossing, rubbing or growing parallel to one another can be pruned. Such limbs may prohibit the growth of nearby limbs.

* Remove limbs that are growing in. Some tree limbs may appear to be growing toward the interior of the tree, and these limbs can be pruned. * Remove limbs growing toward the ground. A healthy tree’s limbs will grow outward, not toward the ground. * Remove dead limbs. Dead limbs simply take up space, and a dead limb is not going to grow back come the spring. Dead, broken or diseased limbs should be removed when pruning.

* Do not top trees. Tree topping is the removal of large branches and/or trunks from the top of a tree. Topping leaves a tree susceptible to disease and insect infestation, and homeowners who top trees to prevent them from getting any larger should know that topping actually promotes the growth of smaller, weaker branches that eventually grow as tall, if not taller, than the original branches before the tree was topped. Topping also decreases a tree’s life expectancy.

Prep Work Important Before Painting Painting a home’s interior can give it a completely new look and feel. A fresh coat of paint can make a room feel more vibrant and up-to-date, creating a whole new attitude within the room without breaking the bank. Whether creating an accent wall or painting each wall within a room, painting is a relatively easy and inexpensive home improvement project. But that doesn’t mean painting does not require a little prep work before the project can begin. * Address any holes or bumps on the wall. Holes or cracks in the wall will need to be patched with spackle, which then must dry before the wall can be given a new coat of paint. In addition, sand down any bumps until the walls are smooth and free of any unsightly abnormalities.

* Wash the walls. Walls can get dirty, and that dirt may or may not be masked by paint. Before adding a new coat of paint, wash the walls and inspect them for dust. Dust can collect on molding, especially in rooms that get little enatural air. When dust has collected on the molding and around doorways and trim, use a damp cloth to wipe it raway before adding any new paint.

* Apply primer. Primer can serve many functions, not the least of which is its role as a bonding agent between the wall and the top coat of paint. Primer ,can also help conceal dark colors, prevent stains and increase the life expectancy of the paint job you are about to undertake.

* Prepare your paint. Preparing the paint is a simple task, but one novice painters may not be aware of. When opening a new can of paint, stir the paint before using it. In addition, even if you don’t plan to use a roller when painting, do not paint straight from the can, which can be heavier nto hold than a small bowl, and a light bowl is less likely to be spilled than a potentially heavy can of paint. In addition, once paint has been removed from the can, replace the lid so dust and other impurities do not settle in the can.

Fall is also a good time to think about flowers. You won’t have the vibrancy of spring flowers, but you can dramatically alter the way that your home is perceived with several pots of mums. The kinds of small changes you can make in the fall are only limited by your imagination. Shop flea markets, discount stores and thrift stores with an eye out for inexpensive items than can be combined to make a stunning display in your home. You don’t have to make major changes to make a major impact on the appearance of your home.

* Purchase painter’s tape. Painter’s tape can be especially valuable to novice painters. Painter’s tape makes it easier to paint smooth and clean paint lines, giving a room a more professional looking coat of paint without the cost of hiring a professional painter.

Painting can be an inexpensive and fun way to upgrade a home’s interior. But even though painting does not require the technical know-how of more large-scale home improvement projects, it still requires some prep work and attention to detail to ensure the job is done right. f

Small Changes Make Big Differences This Fall By Sam Erickson

eUsually, the term “home improvement” leads people to think about the physical structures of the place—plumbing, insulation and wiring—but you can improve the look and feel of your home this fall with just a few small changes. You don’t have to sign any paperwork with a contractor or spend a lot of money in order to make these changes. Consider changing the colors of your accent pieces. Everyone decorates for Christmas, and having a few pieces of fall that you procure this year and keep from year to year can help bring the outside feeling in. Fall leaves, holly and vegetables like pumpkins and squash will immediately trigger warm associations in your home. Got a big elm in your front yard? When the leaves start to change colors, bring in the best-looking -ones, dry them out and arrange them on a coffee or accent table. You could also string them up into the chandelier above your dining room table, adding visual height to the room.

You can create a wall grouping with fall flair anywhere in your home. Gathering a number of dsmall frames from second-hand stores, you can add whatever items you find that remind you of fall. These might be leaves, swatches of color or even sayings that you have typed and printed out. A cluster allows you to make dramatic change in a small space. Clustering smaller items owill add visual interest and encourage the eye to move around the room, making it appear larger. Consider the front of your home. This is the first thing that people will see as they approach for the holidays, and fall is a good time to spruce up your entry or vestibule. A fall wreath on

Sheds also can be a boon to anyone looking to increase the storage space they have at home. Prefabricated and made-to-order sheds are available for all different budgets and storage needs. Buyers also can choose among build-to-suit kits that can be ordered online or from various retailers.

One of the first decisions homeowners need to make when shopping for a storage shed is how much space they need. Think about what you need to house in the shed. Will it hold shovels and the patio umbrella, or will it need to be larger to accommodate a lawn mower? Knowing what you intend to use the shed for will enable you to pick the appropriate size. Another thing to consider is how long you plan to use the shed. If this is merely a transitional storage building to bide your time until your garage renovation is complete, you may not need an expensive structure made of top-of-the-line materials. If you have a long lifetime planned for this shed, you will want a durable structure and might want to increase your budget.

Before buying a shed, find out if your town, city or province has any zoning rules about sheds. You may need to plan a trip to the municipal building and learn the building codes about erecting a shed. In order to protect the safety and integrity of the area, many towns and cities have specific zoning and building laws that need to be followed. A shed of a certain size may require a permit to be built, and knowing this information in advance can save you from taking down the shed and redoing the work at a later date.

Once you know the building codes, you can begin to shop around for a shed. Sheds can vary widely in price. A small, vertical lean-to shed may start out around $350, while a larger, more intricate structure can cost between $2,000 and $3,000. Cost may play a role in the shed you ultimately choose, especially if you are on a fixed budget.

Available materials also should be studied when buying a shed. While an aluminum shed may not be the most aesthetically appealing option, aluminum sheds tend to be affordable and durable. Wood sheds are available in all different styles and can be very attractive. However, they will have to be maintained to prevent rot and insect infestation. Wood sheds also can be expensive. Vinyl sheds may be the best of both worlds, as they are often durable and require little maintenance. Some sheds even enable you to build or add on different components at a later date, so you don’t need to start out with the elite model at the outset.

When shopping, consider if you have the skillset to assemble the shed yourself. You can save a considerable amount of money when buying a kit and assembling the shed yourself. Having a shed built off-site and then delivered, or hiring a carpenter to come and build a shed, may cost you just as much in labor as in materials.

Keep in mind that sheds displayed in a warehouse store or outside at a home improvement retailer may seem smaller than they will when erected in your yard. Measure your space carefully to ensure that the shed will blend in and not be an eyesore in the yard. Shrubbery can be planted around the shed to help camouflage it, and the shed also can be color-coordinated with the house to make it appear more cohesive.

The foundation of the shed also needs to be considered. Sheds can rest on cinder blocks, poured concrete or crushed stone. Check with the shed manufacturer as to the best foundation material, and factor that expense into your purchase. An attractive, functional and affordable shed can be an asset to a home. It provides extra storage space for outdoor equipment, which can free up room in a garage or basement.

Think Big For Your Home By Sam Erickson

Follow Us Daily On Twitter @propainterscp

Fall is the time when kids go back to school and people begin to look forward to the holidays. With the onset of winter weather, you’ll be spending a lot more time indoors. Everyone has their usual list of fall home maintenance needs—cleaning the gutters, clearing the patio, adding insulation where needed—but this year, you might think big and consider expanding the space where you’ll be spending all of those winter days and nights. Here are some ideas.

Installing skylights is a great addition for the winter. They bring in natural light, reducing the need for electricity. They also bring in heat, reducing heating costs. More light can also make a house appear larger, giving a facelift to your existing home at minimal cost. If you are having major roof repairs done or a whole new roof installed, this is the perfect time to install those skylights. Because they are already there, many roofing companies will cut their installation price in half to install skylights. Finish the basement. Most homes have unfinished basements which are often used for laundry and a place to collect stuff that doesn’t belong anywhere else in the house. Really, the basement is a blank slate in most homes. You could create a game room with a pool table, a music room to bring your band together or a playroom to send the kids to when it gets cold and wet outside. One benefit to refinishing a basement is that you can do a lot of the work yourself if you have the tools and the technical know-how. Refinishing a basement adds value and can help update an older home, giving it a modern feel.

In older homes, the kitchen was often overlooked and treated as a purely functional space. In modern American homes, however, the kitchen is often the centerpiece of the home, and remodeling your old, stodgy kitchen into a warm, welcoming space can provide you with loads of benefits. People spend more time in their kitchens in the cold winter months, and a remodel can make it a place you want to be. Winter is the perfect time for a remodel if you have kids because they will be back in school and not underfoot.

Additions can be expensive and keeping the budget in mind is essential as you prepare. If you are planning on staying in the home for a while, you can think of these as investments in your quality of life. If you are planning on selling your home soon, you can think of these as ways to make your home stand out from the crowd. While it may be too late this year to get on a contractor’s schedule, it’s never too late to start putting your planning into high gear.

The site of so many good times in the summer, your deck won’t see a lot of action through the winter, but to make sure it is in good shape for the coming summer, it’s good to prepare your outdoor area in the fall. While you’re adding storm windows, checking insulation and putting the garden to bed for the winter, take some time to take care of that deck as well.

Space Heater Safety Space heaters can be an effective method of supplemental heat when the weather outside gets cold, but the Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that space heaters can cause fires and lead to burns and, when using electrical heaters, may cause electrocution from faulty wiring. When operating a space heater, it is important to follow some safety guidelines. * Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from any drapery, bedding and flammable material. * Turn off the heater when you leave the room.

* Keep the heater on a level surface that is hard and non-flammable. * Don’t leave the space heater on all night while you are sleeping. * Never use a portable propane space heater designed for camping outdoors inside a home. * Make sure smoke alarms in a home have been tested and batteries have been replaced to protect yourself in the event of a space heater-related fire.

Your first step is to clean your deck thoroughly. Fungus and mildew can build up over the summer, especially in the shade or under potted plants where the deck doesn’t dry out for long periods of time. Dirt and rust stains can come from boots or your patio furniture. Through the seasons, you’ll learn your deck and you’ll know where you’ll have to clean each year.

In order to properly maintain your deck, you’ll want to manage the materials properly. Composite materials require a different kind of maintenance on a different schedule than a cedar plank deck. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations on how to use each product, cleaning all of the grime before you get started with anything else.

While it may seem counterintuitive, the first thing that you’ll want to do is to strip away the finish that has deteriorated or you don’t want any more. Again, be sure that you are using the right product for your cleaning. Try a small test area where the material won’t be visible, just in case there is a mistake. Many chemicals in deck repair and maintenance can be toxic or damaging. Make sure you are using the right protective equipment and are careful with any excess or spills. Keep children and pets away from the deck while these chemicals are in use.

Once the deck is cleaned and stripped, it is time to reapply the finish or stain. Some composite materials will never require this kind of maintenance, but solid cedar decks will need it much more regularly. Finally, you’ll want to seal the deck with an approved water-repellant. As snow and ice accumulate through the winter months, this protective coating will keep your deck protected through the winter and spring. Water is the enemy of wood, causing it to crack, warp or split as it goes through natural freeze-and-thaw cycles.

If you’ve ever repaired or replaced a deck, you know that it can come at some considerable time and expense. A little bit of maintenance each year can save you a tremendous hassle, and your deck will be ready for those great times in the spring and all summer long.

Modernize Your Bathroom With A Frameless Glass Shower Enclosure (MS) -- More homeowners are looking to transform their bathrooms into luxurious, relaxing retreats that feature the looks and amenities of an upscale spa. One way to upgrade the appearance of a bath -- and to lessen the burden of maintaining it -- is to install a frameless shower enclosure with CLARVISTA® glass by PPG, a shower glass that features fused-on coating to keep its showroom looks longer than more traditional clear shower glass. The biggest advantage associated with frameless shower enclosures is that they can add to the overall value of your home if they’re done right. Here are some additional reasons to consider a frameless shower for your new or remodeled bath. * They’re fashionable. Frameless shower enclosures open a world of possibilities because they perfectly complement durable, high-style surfaces used in the bath such as tile, marble and granite. They also provide a great way to show off distinctive shower heads, faucets and fixtures. Finally, because of their openness and transparency, frameless shower enclosures can make your bath feel bigger than it really is. * They’re versatile. Frameless doors can be designed to fit any space, making them ideal for bathrooms large and small. And they don’t have to be boxy -- frameless shower enclosures can be circular, oval or triangular. Even standard square or rectangular enclosures can be dressed up with an artfully bowed, patterned or etched glass door.

qualities is toughness. Standard shower glasses can range in thickness from 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch, which makes them sturdy, structurally sound and safe. Watertight seals prevent leakage, and because there is little to no metal used in frameless enclosures, homeowners never have to worry about replacing corroded parts.

* They’re easy to live with. Let’s face it: we all want to live in our homes for as long as we can. Frameless shower enclosures are a great way to let your home age with you because the entry can be leveled with the floor to create easy access as you become older and less mobile. And frameless glass shower enclosures don’t become passe -- they offer a great way to meld timeless style with ageless accommodation.

* They’re easy to clean. With frameless shower enclosures, there are fewer nooks and crannies where dirt and grime can accumulate, making them easier to clean than other shower styles. For an added level of clarity and sparkle, homeowners should request Clarvista glass by PPG. The coating for Clarvista glass is fused to the glass, which makes the surface almost impervious to corrosion from water deposits, humidity, soap scum and household cleaners. Simply wipe the wet glass every few days with a dry towel or squeegee, and your shower enclosure can look as new as the first day you had it installed.

* They’re durable. Frameless shower enclosures look elegant, but one of their most redeeming

* Take inventory of dark spots. A room may be dark because it simply does not have a layout conducive to brightness. Is a wall blocking light from reaching a portion of the room? Think about changing the room’s layout or even making structural changes to improve light distribution. The addition of a small window on a south- or west-facing wall can greatly improve natural light. Using mirrors can also reflect light where it is needed.

* Invest in skylights or solar tubes. Both skylights or solar tubes enable light to enter a home from above. Skylights are larger and require considerably more work to install, while solar tubes are more low-profile and can be put into rooms that do not abut the roofline, such as those obstructed by attic space. The tubular cylinders are installed between the roof and the ceiling and carry light through a reflective tube to the room below. Diffusers on tubular daylighting devices scatter the rays so the light doesn’t cast harsh shadows, and UV filters can help protect furniture from discoloring.

How To Invite More Natural Light Into Your Home A dark home can be dreary and drain residents’ energy levels rather quickly. Natural light has the power to make a person feel more energized, and it also can buoy spirits. As a result, many homeowners want to increase the amount of natural light in their homes. Increasing natural sunlight in a home reduces reliance on interior lighting. This reduces energy bills and lowers the home’s carbon footprint. Natural light also can help people in a home feel happier and more content.

New windows may allow more natural light to enter a home.

* Trim shrubs and trees. If trees and bushes are blocking light from entering your home, trim them to enable dappled light to come through. Deciduous trees that will naturally lose their leaves come autumn can be planted on sunny areas of the property. This way in the summer months they will shade the house and keep it cooler, while in winter more sun will stream in when the leaves are shed.

* Create a three-season room. Make a spot in the home where sun will be at a premium. A solarium or greenhouse attached to the home can be a warm and sunny spot. Increasing natural light in a home can improve feelings of well-being and also reduce energy consumption during daylight hours.

According to the National Institutes of Health, some people experience serious mood changes during the winter months. Dubbed seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, this condition may be effectively treated with light therapy. Exposure to more light can alleviate fatigue, loss of interest and sad or anxious feelings. Homeowners looking to increase the natural light in their homes, be it for medical or aesthetic reasons, can do so in a variety of ways. * Keep the drapes open. Opening blinds and curtains as far as they will go allows as much light to shine in without having to do major home renovations or spend any money at all. Homeowners concerned about privacy can install a window film that allows viewing from the inside only. * Clean the windows. Dirty windows obstruct sunlight from entering the home. They also can make a home appear unkempt. Spend a free day cleaning the windows so that they’ll let ample light in. * Install seamless or low-profile windows and doors. Seamless sliding doors enable a large amount of light to enter the home. Such doors can replace an entire wall to brighten up a dark area of a home. The more windows and doors a home has, the brighter it will be.

How To Make A Home Handicap Accessible Many homeowners have found themselves scrambling to make their homes handicap accessible after a sudden injury or illness. In addition, some homeowners have found themselves looking to make adjustments to their homes in anticipation of welcoming elderly, less mobile relatives into their homes. Converting a home into a handicap-accessible space can seem like a daunting task that requires adjustments to nearly every part of the house. While the extent of those adjustments depends on the individual who needs to be accommodated, some of the areas homeowners must address when making their homes handicap accessible are universal regardless of the individual’s condition.

ONE BIG WEEK MON., SEPT. 30 - SAT., OCT. 5

Entryways

A home’s entryways often must be addressed when making the home more handicap accessible. Portable ramps can be an affordable option and are often an ideal for those who only need to make temporary adjustments, such as when a resident suffers an injury that requires he or she spend some time in a wheelchair. When the adjustments will just be temporary, a folding wheelchair might be necessary, as the doorways might not be able to fit a standard wheelchair that doesn’t fold. tWhen adjustments figure to be permanent, homeowners might need to expand the doorways in etheir homes. Contractors typically recommend expanding doorways to at least 32 inches, which

provides some maneuverability when wheelchairs, which are typically between 24 and 27 inches wide, are entering the home. Doorways at the most commonly used entryways, including front doors and doors to the bathrooms as well as the individual’s bedroom, will likely need to be ewidened. eBathroom

The bathroom might be the area of the home that needs the most attention. Slippery conditions common to bathrooms can make things especially difficult for people in wheelchairs or with disabilities. Grab bars should be installed in bath tubs and shower stalls and next to toilets.

sBut grab bars aren’t the only adjustment homeowners should make in the bathroom as they attempt to make a home more handicap accessible. Safety treads, which can provide a secure, slip-free surface on the floors of showers and tubs, can be installed. Add a hand-held shower head gto the shower stall to make it easier for those with a disability to shower. Portable transfer seats, which enable wheelchair-bound men and women to transition from their chairs to showers and ybathtubs, can be purchased and kept in or near the bathroom.

sWater fixtures l An often overlooked adjustment homeowners must make when transforming their homes into n handicap-accessible spaces concerns the sinks throughout the home. Disabled persons may find it difficult to access faucets on sinks throughout the home, especially when there are vanity cabinets beneath the sinks. Replacing such sinks with pedestal sinks can improve maneuverability, but make sure such sinks are lower to the ground than standard pedestal sinks. A sink that’s just a few inches lower than a standard sink is considerably more accessible to people in wheelchairs. Closets Quality Doesn’t Mean More Expensive We Just Give You More For Your Money

Closets are rarely handicap accessible. Homeowners can address this issue by creating multilevel closet spaces so individuals can place their clothes at accessible heights. Closet shelves can be lowered and doors can be widened so disabled persons can easily manage their wardrobes. In addition, consider installing a light inside the closet and make sure the light switch can be easily reached from a wheelchair. Making a home more handicap accessible can be a significant undertaking, but many of the adjustments homeowners must make are small in scale and won’t take long to complete.

Budget-Friendly Outdoor Renovation Ideas

Homeowners are increasingly extending their living spaces outside the walls of their homes. Expansive and intricate stonework patios and decked-out outdoor kitchens are the kind of additions many homeowners dream of. Those with unlimited budgets can enjoy just about any look they desire, but many homeowners may not have the money to go all the way with their outdoor living spaces. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to create budget-friendly spaces that are functional, fun and eye catching.

Decks and patios are popular gathering spots outside a home, and homeowners have numerous inexpensive options at their disposal when choosing patio materials. And those who can do their own labor when installing a patio can save a substantial amount of money. Instead of higherpriced composite or resin decks, homeowners can go with standard wood, which will need to be stained periodically. Scaling back the size of the deck means less materials to buy and less labor involved.

The cost of patio blocks depends on the material and style. Poured concrete patios will cost less than placed blocks or stones because concrete is less labor-intensive. For those who desire the look of patio blocks without the cost, stamped concrete can mimic the look for less.

Homeowners may not need to replace patio furniture, even if chairs and tables have seen better days. A can of spray paint can cover up any rusted areas or spots where paint has peeled off due to exposure to the elements. Updating cushions and purchasing a coordinating umbrella can revitalize the patio’s entire look. Also, very often stores run sales to clear out merchandise for new displays.

End-of-season sales can also be the ideal opportunity to purchase big-ticket items like a pool, a hot tub or an outdoor fireplace/fire pit. Shoppers can learn when stores discount their merchandise to make room for new inventory and then use these sales as opportunities to save.

Sometimes saving means repurposing antiques or items found at garage sales. Thanks to the Internet, people can easily advertise items they no longer need or desire. A person can search for backyard items they need at a deep discount if they are fine with previously used materials.

Defining edges of planting borders and refreshing the landscape may be all that is needed to improve the yard. This is easily achieved with inexpensive mulch and some vinyl edging. While cleaning up the yard, use a pressure washer to clean stains off of siding and patios and create a like-new appearance.

From patio furniture to masonry blocks to above-ground pools, patient homeowners can find just about any item they may need to upgrade their backyards.

Though not all homeowners can afford to create the backyard of their dreams, with a little ingenuity and some sweat hard work, homeowners can still create an outdoor oasis.

Tips For Unclogging Drains Clogged drains can be a nuisance. And if left untreated, that minor nuisance can turn into an expensive repair.

A number of different things can cause drains to clog. Food particles, hair, grease, soap residue, goil, and even a foreign object lodged in the drain can each cause a drain to clog. Before you have to call a plumber, there are steps to take that may get water flowing once more.

Bubbles Galore sBaking soda has many uses in the home. This versatile product can be used dislodge items in drains. It is better to try baking soda when clogs are minor and water drainage is sluggish rather -than waiting for the clog to get so bad that water is impenetrable. e rWhen baking soda and common household vinegar are mixed together, they form a new chemical called carbonic acid. This acid immediately begins to degrade into carbon dioxide gas, which produces foam and bubbles in the process. This bubbling action can upset the source of a clog in a pipe and dislodge particles that may be causing the water backup. Keep your face away from ethe drain as the smell of vinegar mixing with the baking soda may be unpleasant. Baking soda also can be mixed with salt and boiling water to break down grease that may be clogging drains. Repeatedly washing this mixture down drains can gently scour pipes and keep water moving steadily.

rPlunge ahead If a clog is especially stubborn, you may need to use a plunger. A plunger works by forcing the energy you push on the plunger into the surrounding water, which then applies pressure against the clog. Repeatedly forcing water against a clog can move it along until it frees up the drain. Plunging can be messy, so wear old clothes when plunging. Make sure the head of the plunger is filled with water; otherwise, your work will be for naught. You may want to keep a separate plunger handy for sink work so you are not transferring bacteria and waste from a toilet plunger ainto the sink, especially in the kitchen. Pop and fizz

Colas are loaded with phosphoric acid, which is more acidic than lemon juice and is also corrosive. This acid will fizz in the drain and break through any greasy, stubborn residue. It’s even .effective at dissolving calcium deposits, which may be a byproduct of hard water.

Snake it

Some clogs are more stubborn and require some extra elbow grease to fix. A pipe snake can push hair and other debris through the pipes until water can run free. They also can be used to pull the obstacle back up out of the drain. While there are snakes of various lengths, sometimes a small one that makes it just to the bend of the elbow trap can be sufficient. A snake is essentially a flexible piece of wire that is inserted in the

pipe. It may have a coarse or wound end to ensnare a clog. Call a plumber

Unless you feel confident taking pipes apart to check for and clear out clogs and then reassembling everything, you may need to call a plumber if the clog will not relent. It may be lower in the system than at house level, especially if there are clogs in multiple sinks or appliances in the home. Multiple clogged drains may be indicative of a more serious problem. Many clogs can be alleviated with simple household items. Serious clogs may require the SERVICING ALL YOUR expertise of a plumber.

Construction Quick Tip:

(MS) -- Did you know: The continental United States has warmed by about 1.3oF over the last 100 years, although observers say the impact has been experienced differently from region to region. As a result, meteorologists are predicting a higher frequency of weather extremes, such as the two massive wind and rain systems that collided last fall during Hurricane Sandy. On the s brighter side, the home-building industry says it is already on target for delivering maximum occupant protection, pointing to an energy-saving concrete system that is popular right now in e green construction.

produces walls with hurricane and tornado impact-resistance up to 250 miles per hour. When compared to wood, these walls are far more sound- and fire-resistant and deliver energy savings and an improved indoor environment as well. By eliminating wood framing, all drafts, cold spots and potential mold growth are virtually eliminated, according to leading ICF supplier, Nudura, who note that homeowners are reporting savings of up to 70 percent on their energy bills. Make a note that an upgrade to concrete walls needs to be requested before construction begins. For builders, the newest efficiencies of this type require keeping up with latest technology and how to apply it. The switch to concrete walls represents just one of the major advancements in home construction today and more information is available online at www.nudura.com.

Capital Capabilities Celebrates The Artistic Talents Of The Disabled

SCHENECTADY - The Schenectady JCC, 2565 Balltown Road, Niskayuna, NY 12309, invites the community to Capital Capabilities, a family friendly event on Sunday, October 20 from 1pm to 4pm, celebrating the artistic talents of individuals with developmental and other disabilities. Capital Capabilities features local artists and their work, including original artwork incorporating a pop culture and sports theme. The event will feature a demonstration by award-winning artist Dennis Pullen, a 34-year-old Oswego resident who was struck by a car and paralyzed as a child, and now paints by mouth. A replica of Yankee Stadium, created by artists at Living Resources made from 1000 baseball cards will be on display, movies will be shown and the band BrainWaves will be performing. This visually stimulating event will feature a 78-foot long multi-panel scroll. Each panel, created by a participating agency, depicts a segment of the life of a person with a disability. Following the October 20 event, the scroll will travel to schools, libraries, churches and other locations throughout the Capital Region. There will be an organization fair and individuals from local agencies that support people with disabilities will be on-hand the day of the event to answer questions and provide information. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Schenectady JCC at 518-377-8803.

How to give your resume a facelift The process of finding a new job has changed dramatically over the last decade-plus. Whereas professionals once printed their resumes and mailed them to hiring managers in response to job postings, nowadays resumes and cover letters are largely uploaded via the Internet or emailed directly to a company’s human resources department.

WANTED: LOOKING FOR A dependable contractor to refinish kitchen cabinets and other minor miscellaneous household repairs. Call 257-6743.

But how resumes are sent is not the only adjustment job seekers must make. Resumes themselves have changed as well, and professionals looking for a new job might want to tweak their existing resumes in the following ways to increase their chances of finding a new job.

ATTENTION: Water Tech. & Customer Service positions: Training provided. Must be a HS Grad Starting $535 per wk. Benefits & bonuses. 899-5555 H2o Solutions

* Show accomplishments rather than responsibilities. Many hiring managers are experienced enough to know the responsibilities of a certain job title. So instead of listing your responsibilities as a Regional Sales Manager, list what you accomplished during your time in that position. Be as specific as possible,

listing any sales goals you exceeded and awards you might have won. Your achievements are what set you apart from other candidates with similar work histories, so use your resume to highlight those achievements instead of listing your responsibilities. * Keep things brief. Brevity should be your friend when accentuating your accomplishments on your resume. Your resume should highlight those accomplishments and that should be enough to secure an interview. When you get that interview, that’s when you can go into greater detail. But try to keep your resume to one or two pages. * Remove older positions. Older positions, such as a long-ago college internship, have no place on a seasoned professional’s resume. On a similar note, if you have long since changed careers, you may not need to include much about your previous positions in another field, especially if your work experience in your new field is extensive. Hiring managers likely won’t be interested in a past work history if it’s irrelevant to your current field. * Consider a new format. Few job postings request applicants to send in their resumes via snail mail, so unlike the days of old, you probably

won’t be printing your resume as a Microsoft(R) Word document and mailing it to prospective employers. As a result, you might want to consider a new format when submitting your resume via a company’s Web site. Word documents might be acceptable, but such documents can easily become encoded in the uploading process or won’t be readable if the hiring manager has a different version of Word than you do. Consider uploading your resume as a PDF or as plain text, as such formats are less likely to become scrambled during when they are uploaded or downloaded. * Upload your resume to a professional networking site. Many professionals are initially hesitant to upload their resumes to a business networking site such as LinkedIn(R) out of fear that their current employers will feel they are looking for a new job. But so many professionals are now members of such sites that

it’s no longer associated with a job search as much as it is an easy way to keep in touch with professional contacts. In addition, many recruiters rely

on sites like LinkedIn to find qualified professionals, which only makes it easier to find your next job.

September 26, 2013 - October 10, 2013

A Community Conversation on Tech Valley Immigration In a nation founded by immigrants, few places are as profoundly affected by the influx of new peoples over the past few centuries as our own neighborhood. Henry Hudson turned his ship around at the southern entrance to Saratoga County. Thaddeus Kosciuszko engineered much of the victory at Saratoga. Europeans came over by the boatload during the Industrial Revolution, making their way through Ellis Island to come build the Erie Pete Bardunias, Canal and the railroads. In today’s Tech Valley, people are flying over in 747s from Asia, Europe and the Middle President/CEO, the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County East to further the Nanotech revolution. An immigration discussion will be held at 6PM on Tuesday, October 1 at the Brookside Museum, 6 Charlton St, Ballston Spa, providing an excellent opportunity for members of the community to gather and discuss the changes. The event is free, open to the general public, and coffee and light refreshments will be served. “Saratoga County has a long history of being home to many immigrants,” said Anne Clothier, Director of Education at Brookside. “Early settlers were attracted by the fertile farmland just as recent immigrants are coming here with developing industries. ”Participants will also hear about a related project, a collaborative effort between Brookside and the Chamber of Southern Saratoga County’s Community Development Program. Called “An Oral History of Tech Valley’s Modern Immigrants: 1999 to the Present”, its aim is to collect the stories of individuals who have immigrated within the last 15 years and are living and/or working in Saratoga County. Most of the interviews are being conducted by students of the Ballston Spa and Shenendehowa Central School Districts, the Capital Region Language Center and local private schools, and video editing is provided courtesy of the Ballston Journal. This is a worthwhile discussion about the contributions of our new neighbors. To register, please visit www.southernsaratoga. org/events or call the museum directly at 518-885-4000.
